Imagine a home so breathtaking that it appeals to you on the deepest level … like a piece of fine art. A residence of such originality —a timeless architectural beauty recently completed on 1.36 acres in Pacific Palisades, with views over Santa Monica Canyon and the shimmering ocean. Conceived by Richard Keating and brought to life by residential architect Steven Giannetti, this great estate draws comparisons to the Getty Center in its construction and for its overwhelming sense of serenity and permanence. Interiors of the residence echo a museum ambiance, with ceilings soaring to 26 feet, galleries with 8-foot wide hallways.
Generously proportioned at approximately 14,645 square feet and offering 4 bedrooms plus a maid’s room and 7.5 baths, the home artfully invites the outdoors in through floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive glass pocket doors, serene water fountains and covered lanais. The estate beautifully accommodates day-to-day living in uncompromising style and luxury, as well as sophisticated entertaining with a Venetian inspired wine cellar, featuring a tasting room and separate storage cellar that can accommodate a total of 10,000 bottles. The architect’s eye for quality and exquisite detail is evident at every turn, executed in Portuguese limestone, stainless steel components, rift-cut oak cabinetry, and custom fireplaces by famed L.A. artist Laddie John Dill. The harmonious landscaping by Calvin Abe brings further inspiration for entertaining, as does the outdoor room, surrounded by ponds, a lap pool, and spa.
